Banner Banter

I'm in the market for a new banner. Everyone is doing it and the GGC face is about as exciting as a Blogger template allows. Sooooooo... because I know nothing about graphic design, I am asking GGC readers to help me out with their creative genius. If you have any ideas and/or can whip something up with little effort, the winning banner will be featured in the NY Times, Vogue, The New Yorker and Highlights for Children. Just kidding. The Winner will get a GGC Rapz all about their blog which is a totally lame prize but the best I can do at the moment when Dadz is jobless and the Gay TV Network owes him three months pay. Not kidding. We're drinking ground cardboard right now.

Kinda wanted to play with the Girls Gone Child/Wild title but superimposing Archer's face on a half-naked woman is kind of pushing it. Ideas?

I just emailed you.

I.Love.Innocence.Mission.

I couldn't remember their name ~ I thank you kindly.

NOW...

How about a preggo chick ala girls gone wild (cute and caricaturish of course) doing any of the following ~

*sneering at the traditional GGW ladies.

*Posing for a camera in a big tub with belly floating above holding pacifier, bottle, and who knows what -

OR

Sexy looking GGW girl totally looking HOT like other said girls but - holding a baby. :)

~I'm probably very unoriginal but maybe someone can play off that.

I don't know if you got my email. Email hates me.

Anyways, I whipped something up using retro illustrations because LA and retro go hand in hand. Plus, there is less likelyhood of copyright violations. Let me know if you like it.

It was the eating cardboard bit that got to me....you manipulative beeeatch!

my idea is to have some super hot bitch with her arms in the air like she is doing the girls gone wild thing, but instead have an infant nestled up to the boob BREASTFEEDING! With the Girls Gone Child! underneath it!

Yay! I think its an awesome idea.

Hey GGC, I was just dropping in, HOW excited are you for the FINALE of Project Runway? I'm putting my money on Daniel. He's yummy. Ooh ... I'll know who won before you! There are a few advantages to being in this god foresaken central time zone!

GIRL'S GONE CHILD | 5:55 PM
